Leonard Cohen

Key: 

Capo: 1st fret

  			
 
Intro: Am  G4  G 

          C 
The birds they sang 

At the break of day 
      G 
Start again 
             C    C7 
I heard them say 
      E7 
Don't dwell on what 
    Am 
Has passed away 
        G4        G  G4  G 
Or what is yet to be 

           C 
Yeah the wars they will 

Be fought again 
         G 
The holy dove 
            C            C7 
She will be caught again 
    E7 
Bought and sold 
    Am 
And bought again 
             G4      G  G4  G 
The dove is never free 

         F           Bb       F 
Ring the bells that still can ring 
            Bb      F 
Forget your perfect offering 
           C         Bb      F 
There is a crack, a crack in everything 
                Dm           G4  G  G4  G 
That's how the light gets in 

       C 
We asked for signs 

The signs were sent 
          G 
The birth betrayed 
             C     C7 
The marriage spent 
     E7 
Yeah the widowhood 
         Am 
Of every government 
          G4      G  G4  G 
Signs for all to see 

      C 
I can't run no more 

With that lawless crowd 
             G 
While the killers in high places 
          C                C7 
Say their prayers out loud 
            E7 
But they've summoned, they've summoned up 
   Am 
A thundercloud 
                     G4       G  G4  G 
And they're going to hear from me 

Refrão 

         F          Bb    F 
Ring the bells that still ring 
            Bb      F 
Forget your perfect offering 
           C         Bb      F 
There is a crack, a crack in everything 
              Dm            G4  G  G4  G 
That's how the light gets in 

          C 
You can add up the parts 

You won't have the sum 
        G 
You can strike up the march 
            C     C7 
There is no drum 
      E7 
Every heart, every heart 
   Am 
To love will come 
           G4   G  G4  G 
But like a refugee 

         F           Bb       F 
Ring the bells that still can ring 
            Bb         F 
Forget your perfect offering 
           C         Bb      F 
There is a crack, a crack in everything 
             Dm            G4  G  G4  G 
That's how the light gets in 

         F           Bb       F 
Ring the bells that still can ring 
            Bb       F 
Forget your perfect offering 
          C         Bb      F 
There is a crack, a crack in everything 
              Dm 
That's how the light gets in 
               G4 
That's how the light gets in 
               G        G4    G 
That's how the light gets in
